Quick review: Nanoblur

It’s not make-up, it’s not skincare and it doesn’t claim to be either of these things. Nanoblur is meant to a quick fix solution to make your skin look younger, by improving the appearance of any signs of ageing, lines, wrinkles and large pores. The product promises to make you look 10 years younger in 40 seconds or less. I love the fact that this doesn't claim to be a permanent solution or something that will improve your sign over time. It does this by containing lots of light reflecting particles, which are meant to blur imperfections, so that light bounces off your face in such a way that the look of your skin is improved.

I brought this because I was hoping it could be a solution in the times a month of my skin isn’t at its best. You can use this as a base for your make up (or alone) or if you're using liquid foundation the instructions state that you can apply Nanoblur on top.

When I swatched this on the back of my hand in the store originally and the difference between my two hands was obvious. My hand looked smoother and brighter, and the veins underneath weren’t so visible. But I didn’t see a dramatic difference on my face.

When using this as a base I found I needed to work quickly to be able to spread the product before it dried. Using mineral foundation or powder you then carry on applying your makeup as usual.
I also tried using this on top of liquid foundation, the two seemed to react and I ended up with a very streaky looking face, considering I tried this 10 minutes before I was going to leave the house for work, you can imagine the shock! The foundation I used does contain extra spot fighting ingredients, so I put the reaction down to this, but I would be really curious to know if anyone else has experienced the same thing.

I have read really positive reviews of Nanoblur elsewhere so I am disappointed that I wasn’t so impressed. I can only assume that this isn’t really targeted for my skin type and it might be something I come back to try in a few years time.
